I recently signed up for a VPS package with canaca.com - I have my domains registered with a different registrar - namecheap.com
Now, I provided the NS.CANACA.NET and NS2.CANACA.NET as my DNS servers info for my domains registered with namecheap.com. It has been more than 24 hrs.
If I try to ping my domains on my XP computer all I get is "ping mydomainname.com Ping request could not find host mydomainname.com. Please check the name and try again."
Canaca.com uses VHCS as the control panel. I opened up the firewall for my assigned IP to "accept everything". I am still not having any luck trying to get my domain names point to my newly assigned IP.
Is there any Canaca users out there who have are experiencing the same problem?? please help.
Have you arranged for Canaca to host your DNS? It is quite different getting a VPS and getting an entire managed package including DNS etc. Most of the time you will need to setup the DNS yourself using your VPS.
Anyway this should be better in the Technical Forum. Moved.
Well, that is something I am still trying to figure out whether I need to run my own DNS or not... as you may or may not know Canaca does not provide a lot of documentation or help (like a support forum or anything).... I sent an email to their tech support on friday night...and still waiting to hear back. Hopefully, it will happen tomorrow - monday:-)
You might be right about setting up my own DNS - may be that 's the area I need to focus on. Now, canaca provided two DNS IP addresses in their initial email when I signed up. This would be my first time setting up a DNS -- any useful resources would be very helpful.
I have Debian 3.1 as my OS - BIND as my DNS. Two DNS ip addresses provided by Canaca. Also, one static IP assigned to my server. As I explained previously, two domain names registered with namecheap.com.
Please provide me a sample BIND config file or any tutorial website would be very useful. I supposed I should also confirm with Canaca whether this is what I need to do....
